Weed Control in Winter Wheat – Fall is the BEST Time

October 1, 2008 at 7:00 am

Mark Loux, Ohio State University Weed Specialist, wrote an excellent article in the CORN Newsletter on weed control in winter wheat.  I encourage you to read the entire article, but I’ll give you Dr. Loux’s summary points:

  • apply glyphosate at 0.75 lb active ingredient/acre prior to planting wheat or immediately after wheat is planted
  • if timing/manpower does not allow for applying glyphosate prior to wheat emergence, plan for a early- to mid-November application of herbicide in emerged wheat (best: Express at 0.33 oz/acre plus dicamba at 4 oz product/acre)
  • fall herbicide applications in wheat are more effective than spring applications of herbicide in winter wheat
